Ribbon Of Darkness    (1965)

Ribbon of darkness over me
Since my true love walked out the door
Tears I never had before
Ribbon of darkness over me

Clouds a-gatherin' o'er my head
That chill the day and hide the sun
That shroud the night when day is done
Ribbon of darkness over me

Rain is falling in the meadow
Where once my love and I did lie
Now she is gone but not forgotten
My love goodbye

Ribbon of darkness over me
Where once the world was young as spring
Flowers bloom and birds sing
Ribbon of darkness over me

In this cold room lyin'
Don't want to see no one but you
Lord I wish I could be dyin'
To forget you

Ribbon of darkness over me
Since my true love walked out the door
Tears I never had before
Ribbon of darkness over me
Ribbon of darkness over me
